While Carmelo Anthony's tenure with the Atlanta Hawks will go down as one of the shortest in National Basketball Association history, he will now have a way to commemorate it.

Many NBA fans knew it was coming, Carmelo Anthony has verbally agreed to sign with the Houston Rockets. The Hawks acquired him in a three-team trade on July 25 and waived him on July 30; his brief tenure a footnote in a soon-to-be forgotten chapter of his National Basketball Association career.

This summer, he has worked out with Rockets stars James Harden and Chris Paul.

When a team plays well but loses, it is sometimes hard to figure out if they have been wasteful or unlucky. As Jorginho approaches the ball, he skips just before the taking his shot.

Of course, Anthony and a future first-round draft were dealt to the Hawks in a three-team trade that sent Dennis Schroder to the Thunder.

Oklahoma City traded the 12-time all-star to Atlanta in a cost-cutting move in July.

Of course, Anthony, who made $26.2 million in Oklahoma City past year, could have ponied up $149.99 for a customized jersey.
